Comment by the judge, Mickey Spagnola: A very difficult category to judge this year, but this column makes a succinct and sustained argument that Florida coach Urban Meyer cared more about his 60th victory than the 30 players who had run-ins with the law. Nice job of combining fact, passion and emotion that in the end made you wish for even more.
